Rapper Lil Debbie plays muse once again for Married to the Mob, this time for their Spring ’14 campaign shot by Prince and Jacob. We spoke to the Leah McSweeney, founder of Married to the Mob- check out the pix and shop the collection at MTTM .
We are seeing more flowers in this collection. Is the mob getting pretty this season?

How did the Palladium x MTTM collab come about?
I’ve been wanting to work with Palladium for years. My sister Sarah models for them and introduced us. A lot of MOB girls already love Palladium so its great to offer our customer a co-branded boot.
